Does anyone know where to find Fernet in Calgary? I cannot find it anywhere.

    I learned the trick of checking the ALCB website here. Saved me from looking all over for Khukri rum and turned me into a (legal) rum runner from the US.

      Thanks everyone. My friends and I actually did try over 30 places. Great help!

        According to the Alberta Liquor site, these four places carry it but you will have to call them to see if it is actually in stock.

          No offense Stef but how hard did you look?

          I just called Nicastro and they do have it in stock.

            Fernet is not a common drink. As you can see in Calgary only four stores do. Branca mentha is even harder to find.
